Academic Background

Eva Reinisch studied general linguistics at the University of Vienna, where she graduated in 2005. From 2006 to 2009 she was a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. After finishing her thesis titled "Processing the fine temporal structure of spoken words", she held PostDoc positions in the US at the Department of Psychology at Emory University (Atlanta, GA) and Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, PA), as well as back at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. Having received a stipend from the Humboldt Foundation at the end of 2012, she moved to Munich, Germany, for her project "Do you hear who is talking? Speaking rate normalization in multiple-talker environments". She stayed at the Institute of Phonetics and Speech Processing at Ludwig Maximilians University (LMU), Munich, for additional projects and got her "Habilitation" in 2016 with the cumulative thesis "Perceptual learning in speech: insights into the mechanisms of speech processing and phonetic category representation". From 2015-2020 she was the PI of an Emmy-Noether Research Group funded by the German Research Council (DFG). The project was titled "The impact of auditory feedback on error monitoring and phonetic category representation in a second language." In 2019 she was interim professor and chair of the Institute of General Linguistics at LMU Munich. At the end of 2019 she joined the Acoustics Research Institute as the group leader of the Acoustic Phonetics group.
